Vachen Smartwatch is a real watch with added functions like a customizable watchface and an ability to connect to Android devices and iPhones.

The watch runs on Android OS Gingerbread and has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. Users can connect the watch to their smartphones and receive notifications of emails, calls, text messages, and even Google calendar alerts through haptic vibration.

The water-resistant VACHEN Smartwatch also has a 3-Axis accelerometer with gesture detection and includes stopwatch, alarm and timer functions.



Matching the watch with any look or outfit is easy with the customizable watchface. VACHEN Smartwatch has over a hundred circular and square watchface designs that users can simply download from the VACHEN store and add to the smartwatch. Changing the design of the watchface is as easy as tapping the touchscreen display.

The watch allows wearers to use Android apps dedicated to smartwatches. VACHEN provies a number of apps, but expect developers to come out with more in the future.

VACHEN Smartwatch is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
